What is a Lutheran?
Lutherans are Christians who honour the German Reformer Martin Luther. Luther boldly challenged some practises within the Roman Catholic Church in the early years of the 16th century. Famously, he posted his 95 theses to a church door in Wittenburg, in 1517, which means we have now come to celebrate 500 years of reformation history. Lutherans are evangelical (We speak the good news). We confess that Jesus Christ is the Saviour of the world. He redeems us because He has taken upon Himself the consequence of sin for everyone. By suffering hell on the cross, Jesus Christ took on the just punishment for our sin. Because He is risen from the dead, Jesus now promises us everlasting Life in Him.
As Lutherans, we are...
Biblical - We believe that the Bible is the very Word of God and the only source and norm of belief for the Church on earth.
Evangelical - We believe that the Bible's centre is the
saving message of God's forgiveness through Christ. And it is only by the grace
of the Holy Spirit, Who calls us through the good news of Jesus Christ,
enlightens us with His gifts and sanctifies us, that we are able to
Confessional - There are a series of documents of belief to which we subscribe. They can be found in the Book of Concord 1580. We believe this to be a good summary of what is taught in the Bible.
